Analysis: Obama Recovery Plans Sowing Some Unease

"...some economists and lawmakers are beginning to question whether Obama's agenda of increased government activism is helping, or hurting, by sowing uncertainty among businesses, investors and consumers that could prolong the recession.

Although the administration likes to say it "inherited" the recession and trillion-dollar deficits, the economic wreckage has worsened on Obama's still-young watch.

Every day, the economy is becoming more and more an Obama economy."

Does anyone think it might be caused by the doom and gloom spread by Obama and his administration? By his proposed "fixes"? By the "fixes" he has already ramrodded through?

In my opinion this is a man that wanted the presidency, got there, and now has no clue as to how to truly fix anything, so what does he do? He pulls out the liberal playbook, which by those of you who don't really know was written by a man named Norman Thomas. Do some research on him and you will find out that he so scared the democratic party, that they adopted a majority of his proposed policies.

Obama: Crisis is Time of `Great Opportunity'

"On the last point, Obama has set a goal of signing a bill this year that would fix the U.S. health care system, which is the costliest in the world and leaves an estimated 48 million people uninsured, plus many others lacking adequate coverage...Our ideas and opinions about how to achieve this reform will vary, but our goal must be the same: quality, affordable health care for every American that no longer overwhelms the budgets of families, businesses and our government," Obama said." [link]

You know, it's funny, I didn't realize that the U.S. health care system was broken. Isn't that usually the only time you "fix" something. Of course it might not be the costliest in the world if not for government regulations, making physicians provide services whether someone can afford it or not, and the government regulations on insurance (both on physicians, and insurers).

Another reason our health care system might cost so much is physicians aren't allowed to participate in the free market. That is, they cannot advertise their prices and attempt to be competitive with others. Quite a few things that could be done to remedy this situation, but you can guarantee that the true remedy's for this problem won't be looked at, in fact you can about guarantee the opposite will be rammed down our throats.

Democrats Have Not Taken Gun Control Off the Table

"So, Associated Press writer Jim Abrams ("Democrats Show Little Appetite for Gun Gontrol [sic]," News Chief, March 4) thinks we have nothing to fear from Obama-Pelosi-Reid on the gun-control front? Is he that stupid, or does he think we're that stupid? A look at the White House's own Web site reveals this.

"As media-proclaimed constitutional law professor (actually, just a lecturer) Obama should know that the Second Amendment isn't about hunting or target shooting. It's about balance of power. The operative word in "gun control" is "control." Shortly after the election, an Obama spokesperson made reference to "ruling," not "governing." It's difficult to rule when the people are armed. Ask Adolph Hitler or Joe Stalin." [link]

You just gotta love it when someone comes out and says it point blank. There are starting to become more and more that are saying this daily and not just on gun rights issues. Keep your eyes open for ever more encroaching restrictions in all areas. Won't it be fun when the government gets access to your medical records? Wonder how much Teddy "Pour me another one" Kennedy would enjoy things right now if we had nationalized health care? Oh, but I forget, he is one of the elite that the rules don't apply to.

Quote for the Day

"Today's federal government is too big, too powerful, and too expensive because it is doing things beyond the scope of the Constitution. This is foolish and it is dangerous." -- newly elected Georgia Rep. Paul Broun
